5G Africa Forum – Next Digital Revolution in Africa
October 7 - October 8
The one policy action that would do the most to accelerate African development is connecting the unconnected. 5G is the next big thing in wireless technology. 5G network is nearing deployment, with global trials underway and deployments planned in the coming months. With speeds projected to be five times faster than 4G LTE, applications that are unimaginable with today’s bandwidth limitations will be possible on the 5G network. The next generation 5G wireless will allow virtually every industry to deliver advanced connectivity and increased intelligence across the rapidly evolving wireless edge. It is essential that the broader ecosystem across the continent pursue the endless possibilities and computing technologies that the 5G network will provide.
With an estimated internet penetration of about 39%, Africa is well behind the rest of the world currently. If we don’t start preparing for 5G now, there is a fear the gap will grow even bigger. Hence, the need for this 5G Africa Forum. Join the two day exclusive forum and gain the fresh insights from the key industry experts from the telco community in Africa and understand how to prepare for an effective commercial launch of mobile 5G in Africa.
